THC - Maryjewona cons & pros?
- 09-25-2013, 02:33 PM
I've given reputable sources listing possible side effects of marijuana uses and all you've done is give me a source that backs my claims as much (or more) than it does yours. Did you even read the cancer link you gave me? It states specifically that the studies are conflicting and some show a definite increase in the risk of emphysema and some show no correlation. Besides the fact that it also specifically stated that the safety of cannabis was when it was ingested orally (eaten) not inhaled! Good source bro.
Marijuana's lingering effects on the brain:
Marijuana use may shrink the brain:
Marijuana may cause (or increase risk of) schizophrenia:
Look buddy, it would appear that you are unaware of the fact that there is a conflicting study for every single thing you're trying to post. Which I will readily put up for you if it's deemed necessary.
But, the simple fact is, you're argument is ridiculous. My stance is that using drugs to enjoy life is childish and is a way to avoid problems in life.
I have mentioned more than once the possible side effects of marijuana use (long and short term) and have put up links to show these side effects, I also have my own personal experience (my brother is a heavy user) where I've seen the mental decline personally in the span of 5-10 years.
And how about the fact that there are studies showing it lowers motivation and makes people lazy by altering brain chemistry and screwing with dopamine levels:
So, it's no coincidence that you can't seem to enjoy life without it. Because your dopamine levels are all out of whack from smoking too much, sounds very safe doesn't it? We should legalize it so that everyone can PERMANENTLY alter their brain chemistry.
Other effects of marijuana use:

Every single one of those articles can be torn apart. One of them stated a "light user" smoked 17 joints or more a week. Are you kidding me? I maybe go through 8-10 a week, if that.
As for the statement about lowering motivation and making people lazy, I would absolutely disagree, where did they get their participants, McDonalds? In my own experience I would say it almost invigorates the mind, but then again everyone is different.
Its puts a blemish on memory and multitasking? No way, otherwise how in the hell would I remember a 100+ page case, or heck, according to your articles, how am I able to even read and comprehend it, because it supposedly inhibits multitasking.
So which problems am I exactly avoiding in life because I'm getting high? Please help me figure them out.
What is wrong with eatables? Either way its still the active chemical thc. Its a valid option for everyone.
By the way, the majority of your articles presented the word "may" as in they may cause this or they may cause that. No scientific backing besides one of the articles.
Well its quite clear neither of us are going to change each others views, so this will be my last reply to your opinions.
Thankfully for me, its already starting to be legalized for recreational uses, so I guess either way I still get to enjoy it. I'll come back to this tread in 20 years when I'm 45 and let you know how things are going. Supposedly my brain is going to shrink and I will have lost some cognitive functions, but we will see.
Thanks, it was a great debate that ensued with intelligent remarks from all parties. Have a great day everyone.

19 people have died in car related DWI wrecks since this thread started ONE week ago going off 2010 data...... Now how many more have been killed in alcohol induced domestic violence in the last week PLUS all the bar brawls across the country......... The number is staggering...... Ban alcohol & legalize pot...

...or keep alcohol legal and widen the legalization of mj. I for one, am a person that can enjoy a drink or two and not go killing people and getting into my car driving around town. Believe it or not, it is possible to enjoy a vice responsibly. Not aiming this at you, justmechillin, just sayin.

Jimbuick has completely negated any stance he ever had in this thread when he just stooped to name calling and angry posts filled with his hatred towards anyone that enjoys life differently that he does. Childish. LOL

He must be an old timer. Old timers drive Buicks. Legalize herb, my dad was an alchy, it caused him to be a very brutal guy.. notice I said guy. No way in hell smoking herb is childish. I guarantee he drinks coffee or tea and If that guy drinks coffee or tea he's "childish"!!

**** all these shi+ heads you guys don't have any fuking idea. I've smoked weed since I was a kid and guess what mother ****ers I'm almost a fukin nurse at the age 22 any getting my Phd and becoming a doctor. So obviously weed has had if anything a benefit to my life. You think smoking some weed is not good for you? Ya how about you worry about your self and let me pack a bowl. Stoners aren't fukin lazy were smart. Its just retarded mother fukers like the ones in this thread who give us a bad name based on stereotypes on t.v. Shrinks the brain? Hahahaha fuk your articles old man

Wow it's Jim vs everyone here lol.
I don't advocate it's use at all. I worked in Residential drug abuse treatment center for kids 13-19. I've seen the harmful effects first hand.
There might be medical uses for it, but I've never experienced the **** people talk about, it's never made me hungry, it's never made me sleepy, it's never reduced pain. I was a smoker for many years. I think if you honestly think it improves your ability to do your job, and it makes you smarter, your making excuses to identify yourself to a substance. Some people function well on it, great for them, just like anything else people react differently.
That being said, my stance on legalization is simple, either it's fully illegal or it's fully legal, either one is fine by me. But this gray area, medical bull**** is abused and I absolutely hate it.
But I know how fervently people will defend their drugs. So that's all I'm going to say, and I'll remind you all its an opinion, and an educated one. That was said as to not offend anyone, you're mostly all adults. Make your own choices.

I could be wrong, but do yourself a favor and present yourself as an intelligent human being.

Ha, knew this thread would get interesting.
I've been smoking for about 15 years. I don't smoke preworkout but I do post workout. It really helps me relax, increases appetite for my next meal and makes getting 8 hrs a breeze. I've been vaporizing a lot more since I got my Launch Box. What a great invention.
Weed is not beneficial per se... but its also not going to kill you. What drives me ABSOLUTELY INSANE is when people look at people who smoke like they are junkies or something. Shows a serious lack of knowledge and ignorance. Don't be that guy, you look like an idiot. Weed is WAY more safe than alcohol and barely any worse than a cup of coffee not to mention its been know to cure various cancers in many patients. Oops... guess the government has got some explaining to do being that its a tier 1 substance along with meth.

It doesn't make a lazy person motivated, nor a motivated person lazy.
It only becomes childish when you let it get in the way of your duties.
The medical emphasis is certainly overused by people that just want to get high.

Marijuana has been used in medicine for over 3,000 years. America makes their own rules, tho. Don't forget, Columbus discovered America, kids!
